Good general starting running book, but the tables on the nook are UNREADABLE, not worth the ebook price just for that point.

This book can be summed up in one word... AWESOME. Perfect for the beginner runner, or one who is just thinking of getting into the sport.

I just wanted to let you know that your book is awesome. It has so much information in it, in one place. Usually I have to one thing here and go to another website for something else. But this book has tons of information all in one place, so it is great and a time saver! Also some of the stuff I notice while browsing through the book I don't remember seeing in books before. I have ran other races (5K, 10K, and 5 milers), but this spring I am training for my first half marathon (LV Half Marathon & helping to put it together with the LVRR) this book will be a great resource for me and other races to come. Thank you so much!
